Sending Raw/Untranscoded Video to Clients

I haven't visited this topic for a while and still using FedEx/UPS to mail portable hard drives to my freelance clients when sending over raw files.  I use Dropbox when the files are small enough but I found it still takes a pretty long time for some clients to download/sync.  I know this issue relies heavily on bandwith, but is there any option coming down the pike to solve this problem of moving big data around on the internet? I would like to hear your thoughts.

    I haven't worked for a couple years.. but last jobs with digital cameras were mailing hard drives to post ( arri log c ).


    check out asset management here.. might have info about dedicated lines or something.. but client would need it as well as you I guess..

    We started to transfer RED R3D files, Prores & DNXHD MOV and Digital Cinema Packages as long as upload times are accaptable...

    via 6MBit/s VPN (ca. 60GB/24h) or uploaded to our internet fileserver (hidrive pro) and send as SFTP or HTTPS Download Linkt to clients...


    esp. the weekend gap Fr/Sa/Su let you transfer ca. 150GB without the need to send a physical HD by express courier...
